      I would like to ride a mountain bike or speed bike around Wuxi. Do anyone know of any place where I can rent one? I have read about the public bike rental system but I'm afraid it will get me a standard city bike, not fit for a 50km+ ride

      Anyone up for Tibet ?

      Tibet Jan 14, 2015 at 6:31 AM

      Hi everyone !
      My name is Juliette, I’m 21 and I’m french. I’m studying art in Suzhou at the moment, but I’ll be taking some time off to travel around China starting the end of january. I have been planning to go to Tibet around the last week of february, but quite honestly, I’m looking for someone (or a group of someones, the more the merrier !) to share the costs with, seeing how the requirements make it quite expensive, and it's always nice to do this kind of trip with someone to share with !
      Anyone out there interested in joining me ? :)

      10 hour layover tour

      Beijing Jan 6, 2015 at 5:26 PM

      I choose a flight with a 12 hour layover intentionally so I could take one of those layover tours in Beijing and visit the great wall of China..

      I noticed the tours are "private" so they adapt to your needs.. i have couple of questions.. has anybody has done it and if so which company you used?
      will you consider the private tour to be safe for a female solo traveler?

      thanks

      Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region Jan 23, 2015 at 5:05 AM

      Hi!
      My boyfriend and I will travel to China in May. Our plan is to get a train straight to Ulaanbaatar and stay at Mongolia for a week. The only thing is we have no idea what to do and how to travel in Mongolia, we really could use some help.
      We are backpackers - which means, low budget travel and seeking for an authentic experience. I know we just got 1 week to spend there, but we would really like to visit the Gobi desert and spent the night at locals house.
      Thank you!!

    • New Bullet Train

      by AaronW124 Online Now Jul 11, 2014 at 6:32 PM

      I'm having trouble finding information about two aspects of the new bullet train between Xi'an - Pingyao and Pingyao - Beijing.
      1. The link below says that it is now operational as of July 1. Can someone verify this? I thought I had read somewhere that its opening might be delayed until September...
      chinahighlights.com/news/aro...

      2. Travel China Guide's online train ticket booking service shows that this new route is now available. But, this site shows the station as "Pingyao Ancient Town" instead of just "Pingyao". Does anyone know where this new station is?

      Thanks!

      Pingyao to Xian

      by cal6060 Online Now Aug 20, 2011 at 3:25 AM

      I am planning a trip to China mid Oct. I worry I might have problem to get sleeper train ticket from Pingyao to Xian. I will take a train from Beijing to Datong. From Datong to Taiyuan, then Taiyuan to Pingyao. I could either take train from Taiyuan to Xian or Pingyao to Xian(better).

      1)Can I buy the train ticket in Beijing or Datong Train Station in advance?
      or
      2)Can I buy train ticket in Taiyuan Train Station for the Pingyao-->Xian route?

      Local Guide/Driver Taiyuan to Pingyao return

      by andsands Online Now Jan 15, 2010 at 2:18 AM

      Hi,

      We are currently putting together our itinerary and organising our trip for April 2010. We would like to find out if anyone knows of a local guide/driver to go from Taiyuan to Pingyao. If so, how much roughly does it cost and is it possible to do a return trip from Taiyuan to Pingyao return in one day and have enough time to see the sights in Pingyao?

      Thanks.

      Pingyao Wall

      by SandiM Online Now Jun 26, 2009 at 11:55 AM

      In September, we are arriving in Pingyao around 10am by train and leaving the next morning (late morning). I am a scenic photographer and want to take photographs from on top of the Wall of the Wall (among other things to photograph). Can you walk the whole way around? If so, how long would it take? Where are the entrances to get up if we are staying at the Yide Hotel (northwest area)? We want to try for early morning or around sundown to get some nice, 'romantic/fantasy/misty' shots of the wall (similar to the ones seen in National Geographic etc). Where are the best places to shoot photos if I want to avoid powerlines, modern homes, people, signposts, etc etc? It sounds silly but I try to photograph my scenery without a lot of 'realism' in it...thanks!

    • Train travel to/from Pingyao

      by shaw1881 Online Now Mar 29, 2009 at 2:30 PM

      In May I am planning to take the high speed (X19) train from Beijing to Xian. On the way back from Xian instead of doing the same, I am considering taking an overnight train to Pingyao and then the next night from Pingyao to Beijing.

      Does anybody have experience with the Xian -> Pingyao and/or Pingyao->Beijing trains? Can you sleep in the compartments (soft sleeper) or is there too much noise from the train making so many stops.

      Also, how hard is it to get tickets. I read somewhere that Pingyao is a small place and doesn't get a very large allotment of sleeper berths.

      Thanks

      Also any suggestions for nice, different, good but still cheap hotels in PingYao and Datong would be very much appreciated!
